A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this book.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this is a wonderful book for any dog lover. It's also a great vocabulary builder and perfect for early readers. It should be noted that one of the interactive tabs lifts a dog's leg, and there's a photograph of one dog crouched in a pre-poop stance. While the pull tabs are sturdy, a 2-year-old could still pull them off.
What's the story?
Is it any good?
This is an adorable photographic board book for kids of all ages. The soft ears, shaggy fur, and pull tabs that make legs move will inspire kids to match words with the photographs of the different kinds of dogs.
Early counting, basic adjectives, and simple adverbs will help the earliest readers master both words and dog breeds. This is an excellent book to put on the floor with your youngest children and watch them entertain themselves -- even without understanding the words.
